Schools Out for Summer

School is out for summer break, and the count down to our move to Florida continues. The official count is 10 days. The list of things to do is growing faster than I care to think about. The movers are scheduled, the truck is coming, and we are going to be gone in a blink of an eye. In the meantime, I have 7 guests arriving for M's graduation. The culmination of 10 long years of hard work. They will be helpful in the planning of our party that is going to be on Saturday. The guest list surged to 80, and we have 50 responses in the positive so far.
We will be making the food, with the exceptions of a few neighbors that are bring over some goodies to eat.
The menu so far is looking good. I have narrowed it down to the following.

Caprese skewers (mini moz ball, cherry tomato, basil leaf with a balsamic vinaigrette)
hummus with pita
salmon mousse on crackers
Fruit Plate
Chocolate fountain
Cheese Plate (or Brie Carmel Nuts Bake and serve with)
grown-up ham and cheese sandwiches
grilled shrimp with spicy tamarind dip

The grocery list is made, and now we just have to go to the store and make all the appetizers, then party down!
I hope that we can pull it off. I will have my camera and be clicking away. Our last party in Hamilton Wood.
